UPDATE 9/9/2015:
Once again — much appreciation to Loretta Ables Sayre for her efforts in getting fans to NHIS! Mahalo Loretta!

[To Sen. Shimabukuro’s office from David Sayre]:  I’ve shared Sen. Shimabukuro’s kind words with Loretta. As of last night (9/8/2015), we had delivered 140 of her goal of 250 fans to Nanakuli High and Intermediate School and we have funds for an additional 30 fans (before we check the PO box this morning). We also are appreciative of Senator Shimabukuro’s commitment to Leeward Coast students and communities, especially during this time of oppressive heat and humidity. We watched a Hawaii News Now interview last evening with the National Weather Service that mentioned these conditions could continue into winter. So it’s really important for everyone to step up and help our students and teachers. Mahalo again.

Excerpts from Wayne Harada‘s “She’s somebody doing something about fans. Cooling fans” (Star-Advertiser, 30 Aug. 2015):

I’ve seen and applauded her performances not only in clubs and stages in Honolulu, but in the prestigious Vivian Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Center, where she co-starred as Bloody Mary and was nominated for a Tony Award in the beloved “South Pacific.”

So when she sent me a note, about raising funds to buy fans for the students of the Nanakuli Performing Arts Club, who sweat like a dickens in these hot and humid times, I have to support her. And now I ask that you pitch in, too.

She and hubby David have priced fans from local merchants, where costs range from $20 to $60. She hopes to raise enough money so 250 fans can be purchased. Sure, the Department of Education should be funding these band-aids for the problem, but you know how bureaucracies work. You wait and wait and … you get the picture. She is coordinating her fan funding with Robin Kitssu, director of the Nanakuli Performing Arts Club, anticipating immediate delivery of fans as soon as checks roll in.
So here’s how to help.

Write a check to CASH (but don’t send cash), with a Fans for Nanakuli in your check’s memo line.

Mail to Loretta Ables Sayre at P.O. Box 893070, Mililani HI 96789.

Upon receipt, she will mail you a Xeroxed copy of your check, along with a receipt for fans purchased, to an address you provide.
